On Monday the Knicks fired Mike Woodson and his coaching staff. Team president Phil Jackson made the announcement, which wasn't a surprise to anyone that paid attention to the struggling Knicks this season. They failed to make the playoffs and were largely considered a mess.

The belief is that Jackson will hire a coach familiar with his famed triangle offense. Steve Kerr, who is covering the NBA playoffs as an analyst for TNT, is reportedly the leading candidate to replace Woodson but his name hasn't been the only one mentioned.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Kerr is a 1/2 favorite to be the Knicks head coach for Game 1 of the 2014-15 NBA season. Brian Shaw has the next-best odds at 4/1, while Jackson himself is 7/1. Kurt Rambis and Jim Cleamons are also 7/1, respectively, while Derek Fisher is 9/1 and Scottie Pippen is the current long shot at 15/1.
